my hearse club is co-sponsering a car show.
the show will be at the starlight drive-in
on moreland ave. in atlanta.
the show will consist of a car show, rockabilly bands,
and b-horror movies after dark.
my question is, since this is a movie theatre
but will be a public gathering could someone
carry at this?
$15.00 will be charged at the gate for the event

Sounds like a public gathering event to me too. In which case, no you cannot carry.

My non-legal opinion is that since your club is sponsoring an "event" and the theater is hosting an "event" that people are expected to gather for or will gather for, this would most likely fall within the public gathering definition as defined by the court of appeals in the Burns Vs. State court decision.

Any other time when the theater is just selling admission for a movie and not hosting an event, I would then argue that it is not a public gathering, since patrons are purchasing a service the theater is providing. But since the theater is essentially "leasing" space for your club to hold an organized event, then I would have to say it would be classified as a public gathering.

old funeral cars (or the proper word is coaches)
some of the members are strange but most of us

are normal (?) people.
keep trying the site when we get it back up
click on MEDIA and check out the pics.
sorry this is so long, but i'm proud of what we have done
with this club.

THANKS FOR THE QUESTION MALUM

OH, by the way read the flyer and come on down.

Hearses

I knew a guy who had a hearse for his personal transportation in high school. It was a big old Cadillac hearse-- very similar to a limousine except of course for the lack of back seats.

He always joked about playing UNDERTAKER with it. How do you play "undertaker" you might ask? Take a girl to the cemetary, "lay her out" in back, and then "bury the stiff."

I don't live too far from Moreland Ave. and I am very familiar with the area. You have to be crazy not to carry a defensive weapon. Anywhere on Moreland, south of I-20 all the way to I-285, is nothing but ghetto.

Carry it and conceal it well for one day it could save your life.

That's a little harsh. The police academy is down there. So is my favorite BBQ joint - Harold's!

I had lunch at Harold's yesterday. Introduced someone who had never eaten there. Good stuff!

Harold's? Where is that? I'm always looking for good BBQ but it's difficult to find in urban area. Occasionally we'll eat at Dusty's near Druid Hills.

Don't get me wrong...the zoo, Cyclorama, and Grant Park are very nice. But if you live here long enough you quickly learn the ghetto isn't too far away.

The proximity to Turner Field is great but I'd never walk home in the dark from there. Unfortunately Turner Field doesn't have place where I can check in my firearm while I'm at the game. :(

Best BBQ in Atlanta!

Harold's, Atlanta. Trying to imagine life without Harold's Brunswick stew and crackling corn bread is too depressing to contemplate. 171 McDonough Blvd ., SE (at Lakewood Ave.). 404-627-9268.

If country music is the white man's blues, then Harold's Barbecue in Atlanta is its culinary expression. Harold's original location, which opened in 1947 in south Atlanta . . .
http://www.southernfoodways.com/fea_haroldsbbq.shtml

The diner's-eye-view of the kitchen is less than flattering, but there's barbecue magic at work back there. Pork ribs pack an exemplary heft and flavor, and barbecued beef, in sandwich or platter form, proves similarly pleasing. Homemade cornbread is just-right flaky; the sweet tea is addictive.

:righton:

Best directions are to exit I-17-85 at University avenue. Proceed east. The road turns sharply to the right, and shortly thereafter there is a fork in the road. The fork to the left is the correct one, and Harolds is a couple hundred yards or so past the fork!
